2019-2020 FEES

Stellar MLS is focused on the success of its customers! Real estate is a rapidly evolving industry. New companies and technology are emerging with the goal of replacing you, but we strongly believe in the role that real estate professionals play in the transaction. The amount of money being invested in new technologies outside of the MLS is staggering…more than tripling from just a few years ago.

As a result, Stellar MLS needs to evolve right along with the industry and the emerging technologies coming forward. We are investing in new tools and services to ensure we meet your needs and keep you at the center of your real estate transactions.

You will see initial changes shortly with others later in 2019 and beyond. In the coming months, new tools will be introduced, along with improvements to our existing tools. We will continue to refine and enhance our offerings to give you what you need to succeed.

Additionally, we will continue to invest in the customer service that we provide to you, and in the quality of our data.

Finally, you can rest-assured that as a strategic partner in your business, we will constantly keep up with a rapidly changing industry.

No.  There is no single initiative that would cause fees to rise. We recognize the changes in the industry continually impact the technologies needed to best serve you.

We understand that not every subscriber uses every product the MLS offers. We are exploring ways to give you additional choices in the future. However, it is still important for us to make sure that we are providing a wide variety of solutions to succeed in an increasingly competitive industry.

This decision was not made lightly. Both our staff and our volunteer leadership (Board of Directors) has been researching trends in the industry and evaluating what is needed to invest in and thrive within the industry.  After extensive strategic planning, deliberation and debate, our Board of Directors voted to approve the 2019-2020 fees.
